Wear the best of both threads
Wool gets a lot of well-deserved hype. A natural fiber, it’s anti stink and stays warm and breathable even when wet. You could call it nature’s performance thread.
But wool isn’t perfect. It can wear out fast and dry slowly. Yet when expertly knitted with a polyester thread, the resulting fabric is greater than the sum of its parts. Polartec Power Wool puts soft Merino wool against the skin with a durable polyester face to fend off abrasive surfaces. Wool creates a next-to-skin microclimate, better managing your personal comfort and pulling moisture away from the skin. The knitted capillary structure of Power Wool transfers that moisture to the polyester thread, decreasing dry times.
Polartec Power Wool is perfect for long days, variable conditions, and when you just can’t get to a washing machine. That why we recommend you add some to your collection of reliable wardrobe staples this fall. To help, we’ve pulled together the standouts.
